Bullfighting by Elisabeth Hardouin-Fugier
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Art? Ritual? Sport? Cruelty? Though opinions are divided, one thing is certain - bullfighting sparks passionate responses. Supporters argue that bullfighting is a culturally important tradition stretching back thousands of years; while animal rights groups argue that it is cruel and barbaric, causing unnecessary suffering to both bulls and horses. In A History of Bullfighting Elisabeth Hardouin-Fugier brings clarity to this debate through an exploration of the long history of killing bulls as public spectacle.
